BAMAKO (AFP) - Mali's Prime Minister Moussa Mara said on Sunday the country was "at war" against terrorists in the rebel-controlled northern city of Kidal after clashes between separatist militants and the Malian army left 36 dead.
"The terrorists have declared war on Mali, so Mali is at war against these terrorists. We will mobilise the resources to fight this war," Mara told AFP by telephone.
